The theme of building and renovation is almost fundamental for the Tretyakov Gallery in Samara. In the near future, the museum should move to the former building of a constructivist kitchen factory. Now, surrounded by scaffolding, it is returning to life. The temporary pavilion of the gallery assembled from the scaffolding for the Volgafest festival is a space immersed into the repair, which simultaneously becomes a symbol of the building of a kitchen factory and a metaphor for renewal and regeneration.
In the initial years of the Sixteenth century Raffaello Sanzio – and before him, at the end of the Fifteenth, Pinturicchio, Filippino Lippi, Signorelli and Sodoma – walked in the company of Giovanni da Udine through the mysterious frescoed galleries of a Domus Aurea not yet brought to light, buried by centuries of damnatio memoriae, land and Trajan buildings. A maze made up of hundreds of rooms which, on the occasion of the anniversary of the death of the painter and architect from Urbino, host the exhibition curated by Vincenzo Farinella with Stefano Borghini and Alessandro D’Alessio, “Raphael and the Domus Aurea. The invention of the grotesques” inside the Octagonal Room and the five adjacent rooms.
Fragments room is a roving pavilion for exhibitions. A cylindrical wooden room is proposed for it, capable of fitting like a “wedge” in potential cultural spaces, using an object without a clear direction, beyond a hollow used as an entrance.
The Casaplatform exhibition project is inspired by the facade of Procuratie, the three connected buildings located along the perimeter of Piazza San Marco. The project is designed to be located inside the Scuola Grande della Misericordia in Venice during the 17th Architecture Biennale.
In 2020, many uncertainties and reflections arose along with the process of social isolation resulting from the pandemic. We changed our habits, and most of our routines took place inside our homes. Facing such a chaotic and unstable world, the project reflects the search for feelings of coziness, protection, and human warmth. We looked back to the place of our most primordial memories to find this necessary warmth.
Nc lab is a laboratory of creative experimentation that takes place every two years in Bogotá and that emerged as an alternative artistic pedagogy proposal within the framework of the Educational Project of the NC-Arte Gallery. The project seeks to build spaces for collective creation and multidisciplinary artistic experimentation during four days, where more than a hundred people participate, including artists, mediators, and the general public.
The Qianhai Floating City activates a barren site with the use of an open spatial framework. Conceived and realized during the Covid-19 pandemic, a time of heightened uncertainty, the project is an expression of how urban space can quickly adapt to changing needs.
